Trying To Create A Killer Bassline For New Track From Scratch!

video upload by Ricky Tinez

"I'm on a mission to create an awesome new bass line using the Abstrakt Instruments Avalon Bass Line synthesizer. In this video, you'll see me start from scratch with nothing but an idea in mind and go through the ups and downs of the creative process, trying out different ideas, recording loops, adding effects, and even vocalizing my ideas out loud to see what works.
Along the way, I hit some roadblocks and even reach a point where I feel like it's just not going to work out, but I don't give up!"

Happy 303 day: Ambient Dub Techno Jam with 7x 303s

video upload by Honeysmack

"Happy 3.03 day! What better way to celebrate than try something completely ridiculous and play 7x 303 at the same time? I was up for the challenge! While it might seem fairly easy, it actually did my head in for a while. I had to think about how to make this interesting, rather than have a stupid cacophony of acid bashing our ears. So I opted for the downtempo ambient dub like sound. In simple terms space the 303s out and give them room socially. Here it is and after the jam I provide some short commentary on my approach and how it was recorded. The jam was recorded in one single take, no additional sounds or post production. Please let me know what you think, am I crazy?

New Abstrakt Instruments VS-1 Analog Synth - New Classic Oberheim OB-X Inspired Rackmount Synth

Published on Jan 14, 2020 Abstrakt Instruments

Update: I thought it worth noting that this project is being done with Tom Oberheim's blessing. From the Kickstarter campaign:

"Tom Oberheim of and Oberheim Electronics is aware of our plans to market an OB-X-centric synth. We asked permission and he did not have any reservations with our plans and said good luck! We have also offered a royalty per unit but there was no interest. However, even though the VS-1 is by nature a boutique offering and won't break any sales records, we will indeed be paying a royalty in deference to the original design."

You might remember the OBX Rack Synth Kit Stretch Goal Added to Abstrakt Instruments' Kickstarter for OB-X replacement boards. It looks like they are taking it a step further and offering a completed version named the VS-1 for non-DIYers, or those that just don't have the time or resources to build their own. The project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter here. Abstrakt Instruments, of course, are the people behind the Avalon Bassline 303 clone, which has become highly regarded by many as the best 303 clone with extra features. P.S. See Abstrakt OB-X for additional posts and demos leading up to the new VS-1.

Some details from the Abstrakt Instruments VS-1 Kickstarter follow - click through for additional pics and info.

"The VS-1 combines vintage analog sound with modern features, designed for those that find modern synths over-perfected. Based on the discrete analog design of the iconic Oberheim™ OB-X, the VS-1 utilizes many of the same design trade-offs, including a signal path comprised of discrete transistors, op-amps, & 3080 OTA's utilizing through-hole components. Combined with modern digital control, a clean & simple interface, and packed into a 3U rack... this is the essence of the VS-1.

It’s all about the tone. Based on the classic OB-X, each voice consists of two analog VCO's and a 12dB OTA Filter (LP/BP/HP) and VCA.

VCO's Two discrete VCO's per voice with saw and pulse waves. Pulse width can be adjusted from 0% to 100%. VCO1 can be modulated by VCO2 (crossmod) and VCO2 can by hard-synced to the frequency of VCO1. VCO's can also be modulated by two analog LFO's, two digital LFO's per-voice, and a DADSR 5-stage envelope generator.
Noise Analog white & pink noise.
Portamento Analog polyphonic portamento gives a natural clustering effect between voices as the analog components are never perfectly matched. Although this requires many additional components it has been included - another example of small imperfections that impart character. In addition, digital portamento with both fixed rate and fixed time modes is also included.
12dB OTA Filter The classic resonant 12dB multimode filter is the desert island filter, simply awesome in a polyphonic synth. The classic OB-X had a fixed lowpass mode, the OB-R has lowpass, bandpass & highpass modes.
Panning VCA's Each voice retains the classic 3080 OTA VCA but also includes a stereo panning VCA that can be modulated by several sources. The spread control make it easy to pan voices across the stereo field.
Envelope Generators Each voice has a dedicated analog ADSR for the filter and VCA. In addition there is a global five-stage DADSR with (20) modulation destinations.
Analog LFO's Two global analog LFO's with triangle, square and S&H waveforms can be sent to VCO1 frequency and pulse width, VCO2 frequency and pulse width, and filter cutoff.
Digital LFO’s Two LFO’s per voice with triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, square, and random waves with (20) destinations. LFO’s also have dedicated attack-decay envelopes and can be free-running or synced to the arpeggiator, sequencer, or MIDI clock for tempo-synced effects.

"Mint condition Avalon Analog Baseline with SEM filer cart. This is the white on white variety. Just like the original TB-303, but WAY easier to program, and has swappable filter carts and sub osc. All analog, sounds amazing!"

TB-303s were silver, no?

Abstrakt Instruments Releases New OS v1.07a for the Avalon Bassline

via Abstrakt Instruments

"We've just released the new OS v1.07a for the Avalon Bassline synth.

New features
- Can now enable/disable MIDI control of Accent & Slide.
- Modulation Envelope can now be triggered on all steps (even if rest or tie).

- Extended Note Range to C5 (Note #95).
- Changed MIDI Accent Input threshold to Velocity 100+ instead of 65+. This gives better response for the majority of MIDI controller keyboards.
- MIDI Program change is now only received on the Avalon's MIDI channel. In v1.06b and v1.06c program changes were received globally on all MIDI channels.

Bug fixes
- Pattern Chaining in Banks 5-7 did not work properly.
- USB-MIDI Filter control now working, was not working in v1.06c.
- Bank transitions between Banks 5-7 could cause sequencer to stop. This was very rare occurrence.

Avalon Bassline Synth - Procedure for adjusting enclosure to sit flat

Published on Aug 3, 2019 Abstrakt Instruments

This video also gives you a glimpse of Abstrakt Instruments' workplace - and some of the music they listen to. :)

"Manufacturer recommended procedure for Avalon synth chiropractic adjustment. A bit tongue and cheek but this is how it's done.
The units are tested for flatness as part of QA before shipping but every now & then we get a support inquiry regarding an Avalon synth that is not sitting flat."

Abstrakt Instruments Avalon with Three Filter Carts

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

"The ultimate 303. Comes with the Moog, Roland, and Oberheim filter carts. The Roland one is kind of janky, it never really worked well. The other two are great... especially the state variable OB, totally transforms the 303 in a good way."

BURG - Jeremiah (eurorack, digitakt, strymon)

Published on Jun 19, 2019 ollilaboratories

If you like my stuff please support me on and

#eurorack #moogmusic #tb303

BURG is back with a new track! :) This time I wanted to make a bigger sounding song than the recent strymon session in a slightly higher tempo (117 bpm) but trying to keep the mood very minimal, e.g not overusing the instruments and overlapping too much but still keep the main vibe. Possibly that this one could fit during an early morning dancefloor? :D

There are a lot of things going on in this track.. Main sounds are, bass from the KORG volca bass + the Avalon Bassline driving the tune with percussion from the digitakt and modular + some hihats and snare from the TR-8s. A lot of random sequencing and shorter than 16 step sequences helps to build variation in a tune that else could have ended up too static.

Gear used:
- KORG Grandstage
- Moog Subsequent 37
- Clavia NORD Lead A1
- Novation Peak, Arturia Keystep
- Roland TR8s
- Elektron Digitakt, Analog Four
- Abstrakt Instrments Avalon Bassline
- KORG ms-20 mini, Volca Keys, 2x Volca Bass, Monologue
- Makenoise 0 Coast
